Blues RW Stewart, Penguins C Crosby and Avalanche C Duchene win NHL 3 stars

NEW YORK, N.Y. - St. Louis Blues right-wing Chris Stewart is the NHL's first star of the week.

Stewart had six goals and an assist over four games to help the Blues remain in second place in the Central Division.

He opened the week by scoring twice, his first multi-goal game of the season, in a 3-2 overtime loss to the Ottawa Senators last Monday.

He capped the week by recording three goals and an assist, including the game-winning goal, in a 6-0 triumph over the Edmonton Oilers on Saturday.

Pittsburgh Penguins captain Sidney Crosby was named the second star with two goals and six assists in four appearances as the short-handed Penguins extended their winning streak to seven games.

Colorado centre Matt Duchene took third star honours with two goals and seven assists.

Quote of the Day

He's a winner. We want winners here, and he's a proven winner. He's won two Stanley Cups. He's 22 years old and been a big part of it. He's got all the right tools. He's got size (6-foot-1, 204 pounds) and strength. He's exactly what we were looking for. He's going to be a big piece of our team for many, many years to come.

— Blue Jackets GM Jarmo Kekalainen on Brandon Saad, who he acquired in a trade with the Blackhawks on Tuesday
